Maurice Kirya: A star returns to stage

Maurice Kirya

The return: The last time singer Maurice Kirya held an event was after the global lockdown when he unleashed his current album; The Road to Kirya at Design Hub in Kampala on June 10, 2022. A celebrated Afro-soul, Kirya will be performing live in concert today at Kampala Serena Hotel.

Following almost 36 months of no show in Uganda, singer Maurice Kirya returned with a 12-track album dubbed The Road to Kirya, which is the sixth body of work to be released by the singer.

The release was followed with a release event dubbed Road to Kirya Party at Design Hub in Kampala, where the singer crooned to hundreds of fans and live music enthusiasts.

The album that is a toast to Afrobeat, Folk and Jazz did not fail to find room for Uganda’s budding Afro-neo soul, alias Omwooyo, a genre that actually defines Kirya’s music more.

Before his audience would come to terms with an incredible realm of poetry and storytelling off his album with songs such as Yakuntondera, Sejjiga, Lindako and others, the singer treated fans to a dance with another single called Bbuba, a song that has enjoyed thousands of streams on various streaming services.

His performance at Design Hub was his first show in two years, so he chose a venue that suited his diehard audience that is more accustomed to his style of music.

The album offered snippets of the relationship struggles and why it did not live to see the end of 2013. Songs such as Too Good for Me and Horses in the Sky, seemed to paint a picture of how he felt about the relationship.

A good 22 years
